Where’s Bill? Celebrating Parent Involvement at Cesar Chavez Academy

I recently attended a parent appreciation luncheon at East Palo Alto’s Cesar Chavez Academy put on by the three Parent Involvement Workers that PVF funds. This luncheon was born from our partnership with Sister Trinitas Hernandez of the Rosalie Rendu Center in East Palo Alto. PVF created the Parent Involvement Worker Program, which places recent graduates from Rosalie Rendu Center’s ESL program in classrooms to ease the language barrier and improve communications between teachers and parents in East Palo Alto. They also encourage parents to become active at the school. This luncheon was the first of its kind and we hope there will be more inclusive opportunities like this for parents to come together to recognize their important contributions to their child’s school.
